A mobility park is a specially designated car parking space for disabled people. You must have a mobility card to use a mobility park.
Mobility cards can only be used if the driver or any passenger is disabled and the approved disabled parking permit is prominently displayed in the vehicle (expiry date must be visible). Mobility cards are issued by Mobility Parking NZ.
Mobility cards are also able to be used in standard car parks.
Fees for mobility parking
If your mobility card is clearly on display (expiry date must be visible), and you are parked in an on-street or off-street car park (parking buildings excluded), you are also able to:
- pay for only half of your parking. e.g. if you arrive at 12noon and want to stay until 2pm, you only pay until 1pm
- stay in a limited time zone for double the amount of time on the sign (up to a maximum of 2 hours). e.g. in a 30 minute time zone, you can stay for up to an hour
